Happy Third Anniversary to TALES OF THE EASILY DISTRACTED!

As The Flintstones would sing: "Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, HAAAAAPY Anniversary!"  All of us here at Team Bartilucci HQ are stunned, amazed, and delighted that on Sunday, August 22nd, 2010, Tales of the Easily Distracted was born!

Fred, Wilma, and Pebbles are still fine-tuning the wheel, so we're celebrating with the ever-soignee, sweet, and snappy Nick and Nora Charles!  And what a year this alone has been! Here's the highlights so far:


* I've been elected as Chairwoman of the Board of the CMBA with my fearless co-leaders Page, Marsha, Lara, Patty (I haven't forgotten anyone, have I?  There's a reason my blog is titled Tales of the Easily Distracted, so please forgive me if I've unwittingly left anyone out!)

* My pal and fellow Blogger R.A. Kerr (Ruth to her pals) of Silver Screenings teamed up with me for the Mary Astor Blogathon from May 3rd through May 10th, to resounding success!

* I also contributed a blog post for another of our pals and fellow Bloggers, Jo Gabriel of The Last Drive-In and Goregirl's Dungeon for the William Castle Blogathon.  My post was the hilarious horror-comedy The Spirit is Willing.

Thanks a million  for being wonderful friends, readers, bloggers, and awesome people overall, everyone!

  1. You're not gonna believe this... but I started my blog on August 16, 2010. So I guess that was a pretty good week for both of us!

    Congratulations. Here's to three more.

    1. Holy cats, Rich, how spectacularly cool that you and I happened to start our blogs on the same day! To borrow one of my favorite lines from FOUL PLAY, "It's Fate, Fergie, Kismet!" Does that make us Blogger cousins or something? :-) Thanks for your kind congratulations, my friend, and please accept my hearty congrats to you as well for years to come!

  3. Congratulations, Dorian and Vinnie, on a wonderful first three years (I'm not far behind, my blog was born 3 yrs. ago in Sept.). Looking forward to many more years of entertaining and insightful posts here at TotED.

    And, by the way, it's my pleasure to serve with and assist you on CMBA's board, Madam Prez (and you didn't leave anyone out - of course not!).

    1. Patty, there must be something about August and September that inspires new blogs, considering the dates of our blogs and of course, how awesome all of our blogs and bloggers are! :-D

      Thanks so much for your anniversary wishes, Patty, and also for being a friend and a great help to me and our fellow CMBA Board Members and teammates! May both of us continue to blog happily together for many moons to come!

  17. I'm filled with shame that I'm so tardy wishing you a Happy Anniversary, Dori Tenore! It's hard to believe how long we've been doing this, isn't it? The movie blog world would not have been the same without you and Vinnie!
